Traveling with kids can be really intimidating, especially if you're going to be on the road for a long time.  Just a week ago, we drove almost 300 miles from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Chicago, Illinois.  This was our family's second time to Chicago, but our first time with 4 kids in the car.  I knew that I was up for a challenge! I learned a few tricks from our first car trip so I was much better prepared this time.  I'm going to share my top 10 tips for road trips with kids.

Using cloth diapers is a terrific way to go green!  Not only are cloth diapers better for our environment, but they also can save a family thousands of dollars!  When it comes to using cloth diapers overnight, many parents say this is one of the barriers they experience with choosing to use cloth. One helpful solution I have found is a Green Mountain Diapers Organic Workhorse Fitted.  These are powerhouses of the cloth diapering realm, lasting beyond 6 hours of wear and the natural fibers are wonderful for baby's skin.  Be sure to read my full review linked above to find out exactly how great these diapers are as well as more information on this fantastic US cloth diaper brand!

I attended my first MommyCon, in Chicago in 2016.  I was 30 weeks pregnant and brought along my 6 year old.  I had a one day General Admission ticket, which gives full access to all the MommyCon Sessions and to the Exhibitor Hall.  I loved seeing all the amazing products for pregnancy, baby and beyond in the exhibitor hall- you could spend the entire day just getting to learn about all these companies and products!  I did get to go to a couple of the sessions- I took my daughter to the From the Farm Musical Performance by Miss Jamie- where they sang and danced and played with bubbles and had tubes to crawl through and toys to play with.  I also went to the Breastfeeding, Pumping, and Returning to Work with Shari Crisco session.  There were many other sessions I wanted to go to but in one day, it is hard to do everything!

For the past 7+ years, my three youngest children have been snuggled up safely with me in a soft-structured carrier or sling until they were too big to carry... I am still babywearing my 19 month old everywhere!  Her siblings have wanted to feel that snuggly warm feeling that babywearing offers.  This is where the Comfy Joey Toy Sling comes literally into play.  It is a mini replica of an adult ring sling, and provides your little one the opportunity to explore, pretend, imitate and practice the attachment development aspect of responsive care-giving.
